My Latest Scholastic Kids Press Corps Article: Writing for Kids


Hi there blogosphere!

I would like to tell you about my latest Scholastic News Kids Press Corps article.

It is about conversations I had with four middle-grade authors at the Lititz Kid Lit Festival in Lititz PA.

Here’s the blurb – “Four authors talk about the joys and challenges of writing for middle-graders.”

Find out what Isaiah Campbell,


Amy Ignatow,


Matthew Cody,


and Dianne Salerni have to say about writing for middle-graders.

  1. Very enlightening article, Erik! And not trying to embarrass you or anything but you’re growing up so fast!

  2. Excellent article, Erik! I love how the authors address that kids shouldn’t be completely shielded from the more difficult realities of life. Great stuff 🙂

  3. Reblogged this on Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog and commented:
    Ace Reporter / Blogger / Author Erik catches and interviews four authors 😀

  4. Very interesting article, Erik. You are making a valuable place for yourself in the world of authors and educators.
    I’m proud of you.

  5. Terrific article, Erik! And how awesome to interview these amazing authors.

  6. Good interviews and reporting. And as a MG author myself, I completely agree that MG is challenging to present “real world” issues in an appropriate light. I try to show things realistically, but in a way MGers will be able to learn from. Great stuff, Erik!

  7. What an opportunity to interview such wonderful authors. I enjoyed your article and continue to see a budding journalist in you. You write very well!
